. >> it is not controversial. it is just stupid. >>> i want to move to chris matthews who had the paramedics on uh lert. but there was one good piece of advice, watch more fox news. >> where was obama tonight? he should watch -- well not just "hard paul" but watch you and reverend al and lawrence. he would learn something about this debate. there is a hot debate going on in the country. you know where it is being held? here on this network. that's where we are having the debate. we have our knives out. we go after the people and the facts. what was he doing tonight? >> bill, can he win back chris matthews? >> if you lost chris matthews, do you lose the south? >> no, you lose chris matthews. >> i would say -- first of all i kind of agree with that. they send athletes out weeks ahead of time if they are going to play because the change is so different. it did look like he had the air sucked out of him. he is the president. he can't be living in denver. >> he can show up early like romney did and then prepare. >> you don't need longer than a day. >> so they were both on equal footing. >> he is the preside
liberals -- chris matthews agreed. pretty amazing. thank you. appreciate it. >> sean: coming up, stunned and left in total disbelief, the president's media army is spinning every ridiculous story to explain president obama's implosion. but i think al gore has found the single, stupidest excuse i have ever found. and then the liberal media tried to have a field day with our reporting of the never-before-seen minutes of the racially-charged 2007 speech. we have more disturbing tapes and we will play it -- the stuff that the networks will not play. another look at the real obama so, we all set? i've got two tickets to paradise! pack your bags, we'll leave tonight. uhh, it's next month, actually... eddie continues singing: to tickets to... paradiiiiiise! no four. remember? whoooa whooaa whooo! you know ronny, folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. and how happy are they jimmy? happier than eddie money running a travel agency. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. >> sean: the president's allies were left stunned stunne
matthews is at the university of denver, which is the site of tonight's debate. chris, i've been watching you this past hour. i can sense the excitement that you feel, that i feel as well. i mean, it is a big night when these candidates speak at their conventions, but tonight the tv audience for this debate could be almost twice the size as the convention audience. just a huge night. what are each of these guys thinking they need to do tonight? >> well, i think obama's the one i'm focused on, the president. because everybody's been talking about, it's romney's big chance, it's romney's opportunity, blah, blah, blah. suppose obama goes on the attack tonight. suppose he surprises everybody and doesn't play defense. he doesn't try to handle his opponent and clinch, that he really goes and tries to put him away. and i think that's the significanti i significanting question. how does romney deal with the fact that he has no spontaneity? no ability to deal with the unexpected? how does he deal with that in the debate for an hour and a half? so will obama go after the guy, not play defense, not
on msnbc mott rated by chris matthews. each person had a role, i was the one who had to play the role of chris matthews and others up there -- which no one can play chris matthews. >> particularly someone with your complexion. but keep going. >> we have a lot in common. but the interesting thing is you have people up there representing the different candidates, and you get to see the candidate behind the scenes prepping, and what they do is you run them through the paces. you have the timing just the way it would be on the stage with the moderator just where they would be sitting. you run them through a series of questions and answers and you see how they do and you critique afterwards. >> is the conclusion though it wasn't very effective because, of course, mr. romney didn't do so well in 2008, did he? >> i don't think it was his debate preparation that was the problem. i think it was a whole variety of issues, of course, but that's why he's ready this time and, of course, you see the gentleman who is going to be playing president obama who has been getting him ready is ohio senator
is the chris matthews show. >> that's followed by "meet the press." >>> good morning, coming up at 10:00 on the chris matthews show, wednesday's big debate holds promise for mitt romney. he can reset the campaign with a snappy come back. we're going to look at past debate missteps by romney and obama how they're prepping for the big match on wednesday. there will be three times that a challenger turned the polls around because of a debate. we'll talk a look at those moments. plus, what does history predict about turning around the polls. join me for a great round table. now for a look at what's coming p up on "meet the press." >> good morning, we're in the final phase of this campaign, just three days now. so how does mitt romney rebound after a rough month, i'll ask the top supporter of new jersey, chris christie. now white house senior advisor david plouffe. and what to watch for on wednesday. stay tuned after the program for my "press pass" conversation with nate silver who was on fire in 2008 with his poll predictions. >>> actor dustin hoffman took home a special honor. he was hon
? >> progressives from chris matthews to bill maher to michael moore all across the progressive wing of the democratic party, there's great disappointment. >> they were jumping out of their seats watching. >> i understand. i understand there was a hunger for us to attack romney more personally than the president did last night. >> bottom line, romney scores, but was last night the first to game-change his campaign and what they sorely needed? >> the only loophole he had enough courage to mention last night was big bird and public broadcasting. >> i think governor strickland was watching a different debate from me and the american people. >> yeah, big bird got hit by the bus last night. joining me is ed schultz, good to have you here. i was watching you last night, your immediate reaction saying that the president was off his game. you were stunned. and then you had this exchange with david plouffe from the obama campaign after the debate. take a look. >> mr. plouffe, why didn't the president mention tonight that we have had 30 months of private sector job growth? that's a heck of a n
>> so are we. and it's usually in your favor. thank you so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> hide and seek. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with the many secrets of mitt romney. he wants to be president he'll tell us that, but why? besides the office that is, besides the honor his father missed, besides the notion of being america's top winner that is. why does he want to be president? to go to war with iran? waging a new war in the middle east while escalating two others? to do it without telling us when or how he's going to end it or for that matter those two two. to finance a big across the board tax cut but not tell us how. not what big across the board deductions he'll deny people in order to pay for it or even what taxes he's been paying himself over the years. or how he'll finance all those popular things in the president's health care plan once he kills the plan itself. lots of secrets. secrets because he himself has no earthly idea what the answers are. i'm joined by democratic st
>> rose: welcome to the program. tonight, politics, we begin with chris matthews, host of msnbc's hardball and the chris matthew show. that romney was not predictable. he came in so strong and so in charge that he basically took over the room and i felt he was sufficient in that stage, meaning the president didn't need to be there for romney to put on that show and jim lehrer didn't need to be there, it was a romney control of that space and that physical control of that space which was so dominant. i don't think we have seen anything like it before. and in probably a presidential debate. >> rose: we continue request mark halperin of time magazine and benjamin brafman, a leading trial attorney. the mitt romney was on display last night is the one that his friends and family and a few journalists who have had access to him over the years have seen before. that guy can win this race. the question is, can jesus stain it beyond one night. >> in any number of areas what governor romney has done as he said laid, said last night he laid out the broad principles but now you have gotten
was obama tonight? >> jon: you happy? mr. president, you broke chris matthews. now nobody can use him. (applause) admittedly mathews is runs a not a machine, everyone knows he is a simple potato battery. but still, he likes you. and even the people who don't like you were some what stunned at the poor performance. even osama bin laden from the bottom of his watery grave watched and was like that's the guy that killed me? (laughter) really? mr. look down at the paper all night, shot me in the face. here's what's perhaps most maddening. for the past year and a half you, mr. president, have inundated this country with urgent e-mails begging for support and money and energy and money and money and money. and it's not just the number of e-mails, it's the intensity of their content this is our one shot. say you're in. your response is critical. i can't do this on my own. and by the way, you made that you bund antley clear last night-- but the point is this, you and your campaign have demanded a level of effort, urgency and relentlessness from your supporters. a level of urgency and relentle
what, you know what? do you know why, i just got to get another taste of chris matthews here. but before we do that let me just-- i want to jack in right here okay, jack into him right there, so i can feast on his impotent rage. >> tonight wasn't an msnbc debate was it? it just wasn't. i don't know what was doing out there. i don't know how he let romney get away it with it. they are part of your 47%. you want to-- you don't have any chance, what are you talking about. where was obama tonight! he should watch -- -- with was romney doing, winning. obama should watch msnbc. >> stephen: i'll vote for anything that moves! (laughter) folks, i am not surprised that romney crushed it. because this debate was right in his wheelhouse. soul-crushing. in fact, it was so tedious i think man in the front row fell asleep. (laughter) the first half hour, the first half hour, folks. (applause) the first half hour was an or geoof tax policy minutish-- orgy was tax policy minutia, and they moved on to the intricacies of medicare solvency it was off the hook, in that it would have been more int
. this is one of the great frustrations that chris matthews had and ed and the entire panel at msnbc. they were so angry and i think for good reason because there were basic -- >> joe, this is an important question. it's not just the analysts, it's the average american had the answers for that. clearly, this was not like chris matthews knew and he didn't know. every person i talked to said, well, why didn't he say this? he could not ha he couldn't not have the answers. >> hold on. this isn't a debate or chris or ed. this is a debate to win the election. i'm sorry, it may have been disappointing, but there was something else going on. you have the jobs numbers coming out at 8:30 this morning in just a couple of hours. you have a lot of other things at play, and he's in a certain position in this race. there must have been, as flummoxing as it was to watch, a strategy. what was it? >> i haven't said this for a very long time. i'll say it again, though. debates are where you show your depth of understanding about politics. i've seen 1,000 debates. i've participated in, you know, scores of debates.
. stop and say that again because chris matthews said it last night, that maybe he's heard "hail to the chief" one too many times. say that again. >> no one has spoken to him that way -- no one has tried to interrupt him in four years. and i think it showed. >> you're surrounded as president by yes-men and totis. that's what happens. everyone agrees with you. >> that's a little harsh. >> but it's just -- >> i don't think that's the case. >> everyone wants to agree with the president. no one ever says to the president, you know, it's hard to say to the president you're wrong, sir, no one gets in your face, no one interrupts you, no one tries to tell the ref to control the room. everyone is always differential. that's the power of the presidency. he hasn't had an argument since he met john mccain in the third debate in 2008. a real argument of this kind. where you're fighting for time. you're fighting for control of n anything the president ever h to do. >> on a human level -- >> any president. >> that's a great point. any president, any governor, any senator, you're almost indigna

our broadcast tomorrow afternoon before the big debate. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> so does romney like you? let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. on the way to denver. but let me start with where we are this night before the first presidential debate. our late and much respected colleague tim russert used to say, numbers, numbers, numbers, and that's what this election comes down do, who gets that 270 electoral votes and who doesn't. what's fascinating this year is what numbers seem to matter most in deciding voters and how they do vote. two numbers jump out at me this election year. the first, which got famous months ago, is 1%. that top, the people making the most, getting the best breaks on taxes and other things. the second number that just broke out recently is 47%. it's that part of america that mitt romney has dismissed as freeloaders, moochers, takers in his words. i'm joined by howard fineman with "the huffington post." also we have romney's -- let's take a look at this howard, romney's 47% comments had a lasting impact
by the president's looking down. chris matthews brought that up several times. these are small pieces of the puzzle we cannot stress enough. we don't know if mitt romney will get a bump from this, but his appearance proved that he came to play ball, and he came to play hardball with the president. do we have any more insight into the strategy down to the whole looking at his papers the entire time or much of the time when romney was confronting him? >> tamron, we don't have any idea on the strategy. to a lot of people it looked like to borrow a football team doing a little defense, not too aggressive and above the fray, keep your lead. as we know in politics as well as in football, sometimes when you have a defense, you can give up an easy, quick score. that seemed it to happen last night. you regarded about the lack of fight for president obama. i don't think it was surprising that mitt romney had a good debate performance. a lot of us expected that. i think what surprised everyone was president obama didn't seem up and as energized as mitt romney was. >> i think you're absolutely right on that. t
outhustled, outfacted, outenergized and outinformed president obama. msnbc's chris matthews, an old pal of mine, completely went off the rails. take a listen to this. >> where was obama tonight? romney, i love the split screen. staring at obama. addressing him like the prey. he did it just right. i'm coming at an incumbent. i got to beat him. you got to beat the champ and i'm going to beat him tonight. what was romney doing? he was winning. >> he sure was, chris. he was winning big time. so now that romney is on a roll, where does he run after last night's sweeping win? let's talk. here now is democratic strategist steve mcmahon. and then cnbc contributor geoff jennifer rubin, author of the "washington post" right turn blog. jennifer was it a game changer for the whole presidential race? >> it potentially can be. what has to happen now romney has to build on that day after day. the difficulty they've had, this was true in the primary as well, they have a few good days and then they get off message or they fumble the ball a little bit. if they can string together one good day after anoth
for being with us today and all week. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> 7.8% jobless number. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with the good news on the unemployment front, getting the jobless number down to 7.8% a month before the election could be the upbeat news to give this president the kind of big-time bounce he needs. since the campaign began we've known the power of the unemployment figure. now we have the number itself. plus, the good news about the last two months, it's clear that the economy created more jobs than previously estimated. there are some people out there who don't like this number, don't like it at all, and leading the band is the legender ceo of general electric, jack welch, who joins us right now. jack, you made a lot of news today. here is the tweet you put out this morning. unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate so change numbers. and i'm just wondering, i understand the way it works is the president gets a heads-up on the unemployment number 4:00 the day be
a different reception when he tried to peddle his theory to my colleague chris matthews on this network. >> i have no evidence to prove that. i just raised the question. >> no you didn't. you said these chicago guys will do anything. >> yeah. >> so they changed the numbers. do you want to take this back? >> no i don't want to take it back. >> there is a serious assertion there was corruption here, infiltration or getting to -- it's not funny, jack. you're talking about the president of the united states playing with the bureau of statistics numbers. this is nixon stuff. do you want to take back the charge that there was corruption here? >> i don't want to take back one word in that tweet. >> so let's be clear about where we stand on the conspiracy to re-elect barack obama. from everything we've been told by the right wingers, here is who was involved. the bureau of labor statistics which has never been influenced by any white house. somehow, somehow they manipulated the numbers. but they only manipulated the numbers for the month of september instead of manipulating them for three years. okay

'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with mr. romney's divorce. why did he pick paul ryan for his running mate? certainly not for better or worse. mitt spends his days and nights acting as if he's out there all alone, that he never hooked up with ryan in the first place. i get it. romney doesn't want to get dragged down by his political mate's push for getting rid of medicare. he acts like ryan has no hold on him, but it's not the way it works. romney has slowly gotten the word that the voter out there thought the two had things worked out, that romney and ryan were in this thing together. well, they're not. romney is dying. he can't stand being tied to ryan, and all that budget cutting baggage of his. for his part, ryan is feeling the taint of having a running mate who is unwilling to stand with him, unwilling to be his kind of politician. a conviction politician. so trouble in paradise. mitt's dying to be single again, so is ryan. we all know that politics makes strange bedfellows but the word is out this pair, romney and ryan, are sleeping in separate rooms. i'm joined by msnbc
, so change the numbers. when pressed by chris matthews, he wouldn't take it back. >> i have no evidence to prove that. i just raised the question. >> did you talk to the economists or any of the people in the accounting world that understood how the numbers were put together before you accuse the chicago guys of changing the numbers? >> it seems like a coincidence, that one month before the election they would end up at 7.8. >> reporter: the numbers are crunched by the economists and the independent bureau of labor statistics, civil services, not employees. >> these are skilled people working at the als. >> reporter: a prominent romney supporter agrees. >> there was no way they were manipulated for political purposes. the people that put it together were civil servants, the experts in the area. the process was one of integrity. >> reporter: while some see it as a boost, romney is trying to neutralize the attack, over his comments regarding 47% of americans not paying income tax. this is a view he now disavows. >> sometimes you say something completely wrong. >> reporter: onl
